You Have Mail

Hello and good morning :-) I don't know this year it almost seams that iam having my "red phase" lol. Funny.. i actually do have trouble with the red Copic's i hassle with them forever and am never happy with my coloring. Anyhow.. my first card is made for this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge "Happy Mail" and the card below was made already last month when i came across this cute Alota stamp. I love the bugs. On the one with the ice cream it is kind of fun to just go a little wild with Stickles, Liquid Applique and all that kind of stuff :-)
first card: "bugs sending mail" and second card "2 scoops"
first card: scraps from stash Imaginice papers, second card all Stampin up papers
